Not if you buy them here; in fact it might be a surprisingly small sum. To
be specific $1.00 will buy a neat, worthy, appealing, dependably-made, perfect
fitting waist. Two dollars it's true will buy a finer Blouse, but the thought we
want to convey is that in these moderate priced waist3 you get Real Style dis

Mexico City, June 20. El Uni
versal, the most prominent newspaper
in Mexico, prints today statements
from twenty-three prominent civilians
of Mexico advocating severance by
Mexico of relations with Germany and
asserting that Mexico's place in the
war is on the side of the entente al
lies. The headlines of the article in which
the statements are incorporated say it
is to the interest of Mexico to sever
relations with Germany and that the
Latin-American ideals of Mexico must
incline her to the side of the allies
rather than toward ideals of pan-Germanism,
absorption and militarism as
expressed by Germany.
The statements assert that German
intribues in Mexico offer ample reas
ons for severing diplomatic relations,
adding that Germany i3 endeavor
ing to provoke trouble betewen
Mexico and the United States. It
is asserted that Germany cannot de
ceive Mexico by the prospect of re
covering portions of Texas, New Mexi
co and Arizona, lost in 1848.
Mexico, others say, cannot lend her-
the industries of the country and that
the coal industry itself is paralyzed
by the failure of transportation.
There are enouch coal cars in th
country but not enough are delivered
to the mines and these cars are not
moved to the point of consumption
with the greatest expedition, nor are
they promptly discharged."

allowance for quality of product and
efliciency of service), and,
"Second That the 'transportation
agencies of the United States, both
rail and water, be similarly pooled
and operated on government account,
under the direction of the president,
